Real Estate is looking up, according to my wife. I hope so! She is a real estate broker and just sold a house in Silverthorne. Several homes have sold in our neighborhood in the past few weeks.

I'll see you guys there. I'm thinking we will get there early Wed. AM. My folks are going to come over and my mom, the boys, and Ginger are going to do the tourist stuff. We have to bug out early Sunday morning or Saturday night as Ginger needs to get to a Polo Tournament in Sheridan, WY by 1pm Sunday.

Black Hills ship?

Hey, can I toss a couple things in a wagon or on someone's trailer headed up to Black Hills? I've got a couple air mattresses that need to reunite themselves with their Canadian... the transaction in Moab just didn't pan out so this is try #2. Been storing one since CM08, the other since Rubithon 08.. would be nice to have these out of my life.. plus I'm sure Kevin wouldn't mind not sleeping on the ground. :canada:

Has anyone called Wild Bills Campground to check there camping reservation? I called yesterday to find out what camp spot we would be in and they said they did not have any record of my reservation but they would have plenty of space when we showed up. I thought this was part of the registration with DTC...Anyone else check their reservation?

corsair23
07-01-2009, 12:03 PM
Will, when I was checking about going the impression I got was that BHC "reserves" the entire campground so maybe they have you assigned to a spot and the actual campground doesn't know?

Edit: This was for a full hookup spot for a popup camper

i called to see if i needed to reserve and was told that no reservation for camping was required, only if you wanted a cabin.

Uncle Ben
07-01-2009, 06:01 PM
Exactly,
We reserved a cabin so I had to get set up with the campground. If you are just camping it's first come first serve. If you need a full hookup I believe you need to set that up. All the campsites are nice! If you want to be in the up all night party spot that is up front and the quieter sopts are along the side on the other side of the creek.

Yaked with Greg this morning. Rhonda will send me a BHCC Itenerary so I can post it up here so we can plan our invasion RS style! I also told Greg what RS's Raffle donation will be so we get recognized on the sponsor sheet. I'm getting stoked! I love it up there and DTC are good folks who I am proud to be friends with!

I can't wait to go. This will be my first TLCA event as a participant in the 100 and my first TLCA event since Rubithon 2007. Don't worry, I'll be back to CM as a participant in 2010. I always get there for the even years and occasionally an odd year. 2008 was the exception because we had Sam, May 14th.

I need to tear down my 4x4 labs bumper and clean it up and finish welding on some do-dads. I also need to change the oil. And look over everything. But the 100 is pretty easy to just get in and drive to and hit the trails.

I finished an art box for Ginger's art this AM. I know that doesn't sound BHCC related but she has a show 2 weekends later. So we are going to the BHCC and then dropping the camper and Cruiser at my folks place in Wyoming and then taking my mom's car home for a week in between the BHCC and the art show.

I'm taking another one of those prints for the raffle, just like the one I brought for Cruise Moab. I need to run to Boise and get a frame for it this week still.

It looks like I'll probably miss the raffle for this one too. Ginger has a polo match she needs to attend Sunday at 11AM in Sheridan, Wyoming. She needs all the promotion she can get for the Wyoming Art Show. We just got back from Glenwood Springs and Vail and they sucked. In Glenwood Springs she didn't even make her booth fee. In Vail she barely covered her booth fee and the hotel (which was actually cheaper than camping in that area). Art isn't a necessity so the art world is feeling the pinch in the economy. I felt bad for the artists in Vail who didn't sell anything or didn't sell enough to at least make the booth fee. It was a great show with quality work, just no sales.

I'm planning on wheeling the 100 on Thursday and Friday with my dad. Ginger, my mom, and the kids are going touristing. And Saturday I hope to hook up with someone to get some photos of the more extreme trails.

See you guys Wednesday. That is only 8 days away.

Lots of little roads to get there. I can take I-25 up to the Lusk exit and head east, ten north on 85 to 16 east. Then turn north on 385. I think this is the route I took to Rapid City last time except took 16 to Highway 79 north.

We left late on Saturday afternoon. Stayed in Lusk that night. Today (Sunday) we drove Hwy 18 all the way to Hot Springs, SD and spent most of the day at Evan's Plunge. Kids loved it. We also checked out the Mammoth Site which was way cool. We're now in Custer, and will be here 3 nights until we head to Wild Bill's on Wednesday.

So far, Custer looks like a tourist city -- great for kids, not so amazing for scenic camping. We rolled in after dark last night, so I don't have a good gauge on it yet.
